FOR MORE than 23 years, the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) - through the United Way of Jamaica (UWJ) Workplace Philanthropy Programme - has consistently provided support to improve early-childhood education, assist youth at risk and strengthen health and community development programmes.

Currently, some 4,500 members of the JCF from all ranks impact lives through these initiatives.

Chairman of the board of governors for the United Way of Jamaica, Ian Forbes, has lauded the JCF for its notable commitment and contribution to nation building and thanked the members of the force for their continued support of the Live United campaign.


The JCF has for a number of years received the award for The Most Outstanding Employee Giving Organisation at the annual Nation Builders Awards ceremony.

A major thrust of the United Way of Jamaica UWJ is workplace philanthropy. Through this initiative, employed individuals are given the opportunity to donate through payroll deductions on a consistent basis.

The UWJ has disbursed over $1.5 billion dollars to more than 4,000 agencies, institutions and projects islandwide.
